The horrible angels sing,
Glory hole for those who ring,
The Wolfman commeth! So grab your things,
So hence the hysterical men will scream:
"Oh animal! Oh brute! Oh savagery!
How can our love be so imaginary?
With No Shirt No Shoes No Servitude,
Must we cope with this love’s attitude?
A trail of shed will wake his path,
While olfactory bliss takes from of a bath.
So take heed to him and hide your brats
And make sure you don’t forget the rats!
For fear of man turned animal debate,
If only we could guess his weight!
He who is him, is not only alone
For he walks a pathway all far too known
Desire turns lust and impurity as perfection
This figure is no product of natural selection!"
